« On the occasion of the opening of its new galleries, the Palais Galliera retraces its history and that of its collections through a new exhibition!  »

The Palais Galliera (also Musée de la Mode de Paris) is a museum dedicated to the art and history of clothing and haute couture. It is located in the former museum palace of the Duchess of Galliera, built between 1878 and 1894 by the architect Leon Ginain. When her husband died in 1876, the Duchess decided to build a museum on the inherited land, which she later bequeathed to the city of Paris. This exhibition is both chronological and thematic, offering a cross-section of the history of the place: that of the Palace itself, its architecture and its evolution; that of its collections and a history of fashion from the 18th century to the present day, illustrated by the museum's most beautiful pieces. From the classic flying dress to the creations of Comme des Garçons, through the wardrobe of Countess Greffulhe and the avant-garde pieces of Rick Owens, cross the periods and styles through the collection of the Palais Galliera. The Palais Gallie has played a major role in the study of fashion history, making it the reference museum for all major fashion exhibitions since the 1920s. The exhibition brings together no less than 350 pieces through a scenography inspired by the museum's reserves. The rarely exhibited masterpieces - clothing, accessories, graphic arts and photographs - are all from the collections of the Palais Galliera. Two successive exhibitions will be presented with a three-week closure between each period, for preventive conservation reasons. An exhibition not to be missed, in parallel with the one celebrating the 100 years of Vogue!
